Updated: Verizon Starting Training For HTC Incredible??

Posted on 01. Apr, 2010 by in Rumors

Update: It appears this was a April Fools on part of the original poster.  We apologize for any confusion.  Go figure, one of the time we do not wait to hear back about confirming a story.

A link to this screen came in on our tip line and it appears to show that Verizon has an online course for its employees covering the HTC Incredible which is running from 4/1-4/12 and is set for a 45 minute duration.  Having previously worked at Verizon myself I can say this screen looks similar to stuff I have seen before, but I cannot confirm this is real.  Although, if previous rumors we have covered are to be true this time frame would make sense.  We are trying to confirm the authenticity through some of our various Verizon sources, we will update the story once we have more to share.  If you can confirm this screen, make sure you either drop us a comment or email me directly jason @ berryscoop.com. You can view the thread the screen was posted in over on Android Forums.

Thanks Gregg!!

    This is a fake, the person who posted it is a known bullshitter. See the thread here: http://androidforums.com/htc-incredible/58822-unofficial-htc-incredible-thread-6.html

    I take full responsibility for passing this on to Jason. We had thought that the post was legit, so I passed it on for berryscoop’s review. Mikewashere05 above was the one that originally discovered that the photo was in fact a fake.

    Jason has always had the most-trusted site, IMO, and will continue to do so. Sorry again.

      ka,

      while this pic is a fake, I know for a fact that the Incredible will be launched this month (end of April). My VZW rep confirmed it for me in March. Believe me or not, I really don’t care, but WHEN it is launched, I want you to come back here so I call you a tool.

    You guys (along with most of the other blog sites) just post shit that is posted in that thread as soon as it comes up- when do you fact check? We fact check for you- you just hope we’re right, and then depend on us to tell you when you’ve been bamboozled by db’s like IncrediblyAnnoying…. your welcome.

      This is the first story we have taken from a forum, if you go through our past stories you will see we have a great track record with breaking our own news and being accurate with it. No need to thank you for our private sources, I have built those up myself.

      Having worked at Verizon and having seen screens very similar to what he photoshopped, I used my own judgment to go forward with the story, before hearing back from my sources. We thank you for visiting our site and joining in the discussion.

    My family member that works for Verizon said the stores have the sku for the phone already..they saw one they didnt recognize and found out it went with the name incredible..he says probably within a month.

      We covered the fact that the SKU was in the inventory system about a month ago. I agree with you, and from what my sources tell me, it will be this month.
